Recovery from any major medical event such as a hip fracture, stroke or medical problem can be challenging for both patient and family. Medical problems can derail your lives and leave so many unknowns.

At Flatirons we believe that our caring and expertise can minimize these challenges and maximize successful recovery. We individualize our care delivery around your unique needs and schedules. Nothing is more important to us than exceeding the expectations of those we have the privilege to serve.

Flatirons Health and Rehab is proud to offer therapy services for orthopedic and musculo-skeletal disorders of all kinds, neurological challenges, surgeries, as well as general rehabilitation. We want to help you return to the highest level of function possible. It is important for you to get back to focusing on what matters to you.

Flatirons Health & Rehab is a vetted facility working closely with Therapy Dogs of Boulder County to bring some wonderful dog therapy to residents who greatly appreciate the interaction on a daily basis.  The Flatirons Health & Rehab Therapy Dog program is a totally volunteer program with team visits choices of 7 days per week.

Teams (a team is a handler and dog) are signed up on a regular visiting schedule.  The team choices for visit scheduling are:

– Once each week, same day/time
– 2nd & 4th weeks of the month, same day/time
– 1st, 3rd & 5th weeks of the month, same day/time

All teams are required to take a schedule available to them using the above choices.  There are no floating schedules or visitations.  All teams are part of a group email list so they can communicate absences and emergency coverage.  A monthly schedule is created and sent to all teams and administration just before the beginning of each new month.

Requirements:

  1.  Therapy Dog Registration:  All teams must be registered with a therapy dog association.  The accepted registration memberships are:

– Alliance of Therapy Dogs (www.therapydogs.com)
– PetPartners(www.petpartners.org
– Therapy Dogs International (www.tdi-dog.org)

If you are not presently registered with any association, we can help you to get started on that process.  Simply indicate your status on the application form below.

2.  A copy of proof regarding your dog is current on the Rabies Vaccination.  A vet record is acceptable.
